Default My Moonbuggy

OK, I got my Moonbuggy in the mail last week. Looks like a fun little kit to build. The quality of the castings is pretty good. There was only 1 pin hole in the upper part of the body and just a tiny amount of flash to claen up. Also, the resin is very thin in a couple of spots but a couple of pieces of sheet styrene will fix that up in a jiffy.

Here's a "before" photo of the parts, right out of the package. There a pour plug on the backs of the tires that'll have to be sanded off. The tires don't have any treads molded on but, at this scale, I'm not going to bother with that. I really bought this to put it next to my Eagle for a little bit of scale.

Here's the weak spots in the resin on the body, which I just mentioned. No biggy - I've already fixed these.
